    Hi guys. I am running win8.1 with all the relevent updates, but just recently when I have been trying to watch vids on either FB or youtube I get the audible side of the vid but not the picture. If posible could someone either point me in the right direction to correct this or to help me correct it myself.

    Much appreciated.

    Have you tried unchecking "Hardware Acceleration"?

    Have you tried uninstalling the driver and installing it again because this has happened to me before

    Thanks guys everything seems fine now as later on that day window8 had 7 updates, it must have been waiting for those update, as soon as the updates were installed it righted itself, so I am assuming it was the updates that corrected it. rightly or wrongly.

    Thanks again guys.
